Jim and others,
I added more pictures to my website so you can see how the hitch is set up.
I rasied the clamp on the upright bar and this allows the rear wheel of the planter to have some ground clearence when the lift is up. You are supposed to let the planter run with the top of the hoppers level. I also raised the "slides" on either side of the opener to let the foot go in deeper. As you can see there are three holes near the front under the hitch prong for some adjustment as well, not sure what these are for. I also don't know what effect the upright bar witht the different posistions just behind the prong has other than changing the transport height. thnaks for any ideas.
On a seperate note, the photo album on my web page was created with a free program that is easy to use. It automatically crates the web page. Anybody that has space on their ISP can easily create pages to link pictures from.
